    More Than Standard

    I purchased this cable because I have recently purchased devices that are USB-C only and of course the accessories were also as such. However, I find myself in environments that aren't quite there yet so in the interim this is perfect; particularly in the car or at the office. The cable is almost twice as long as standard charging cables and seems a bit more sturdy than most on the market. It is completely suitable for basic backup and fast charging. (be careful some cables don't support fast charging). This cable also allows me to utilize my portable charging pack. There aren't very many portable chargers that support USB-C directly so this was an economical convenience.

    My sister needed to charge her Samsung Galaxy Phone since it was dead and I had no cable in my car to charge it. I had the older iPad connection and a micro USB cable, but not a USB type-C cable. Since we had some shopping to do nearby at the mall, we went here and looked for the cable. I remember that Belkin is a good go to for tech on the go and I decided to purchase this one since the next best one available was from Insignia and was the same price, but a short cable (4 ft. on the Insignia versus 6 ft. on the Belkin). It charges pretty quick in my car (0% to 40% within less than half an hour) and is a good cable when I get a Samsung phone soon.

    Just recently purchased this cable online and picked it at the store. I am currently using it with my belkin 3.0 quick charge home charger kit that I bought separately. Bought this cable since it's 6 feet and it came with a 4 foot cable in the other package. The extra 2 feet makes a big difference for me when I'm working or driving as I don't have to worry about the phone unplugging from the base. Love that when I use it with the belkin 3.0 quick wall charger, my s9+ is able to fast charge without a problem!!

    It pays to buy a name brand

    I bought cheap UBS-C cables from ebay and in a pinch I bought this one from BestBuy by Belkin. There is a huge difference in quality. The connection is much more secure and the cable is not as thin and flimsy. Yes, it does cost more but after using it for 2 months, it still connects to my phone like it did when it was new unlike the other cheap cables where the connection becomes loose and you wake up to a phone that didn't charge. There are only to cons to this cable - 1) Yes, I am willing to pay more, but it is pricy at $20. $15 is more reasonable 2) The color is horrible. The only one available was this "sky blue" That alone is worth the extra money.

    Failed Expectations

    I bought it to use in my car radio (to charge my phone), which has a USB charging/connection plug. (Rather than bring one all the time, would designate to car). But it would shut down all other radio features, acting like my phone was a direct music source to radio and would not charge, so had no Bluetooth phone, no radio stations, decided it wasn't the most perfect idea I have ever had. So, back to "normal USB cord with a USB-A to USB-C converter". Too far to drive to return... a whole 8 miles....

      Hi BeachGirl,

      By design, the Belkin MIXIT USB-A to USB-C Charge Cable (USB Type-C) lets you charge your USB-C smartphones or tablets as well as sync your photos, music, and data to your existing laptop. Please reach out to us at BelkinCares@belkin.com so we can have one of our Product Experts check why the cable would shut down all other features of your phone.

    Bellkin Cables Are The Most Reliable

    I recently bought a Samsung Note 8, but all of my "spare" cables at home are "standard" USB 3 cables. To charge, or transfer data, the Note 8 needs a type "C" micro connector, which, by the way, is a godsend (no more worrying about putting it in the right way!), and I needed one more cable for my in-car charging adaptor. Based on my prior experience I purchased this Belkin cable and it has been a reliable performer ever since. I expect to get many years of service out of it before needing replacement (like other Belkin cables I own). This is a great value for your dollar!

    I use this cord primarily for connecting an S9+ to a Honda to use Android Auto. It provides enough power to fully charge my phone even with several apps running through Android Auto. I also use this cord to charge my phone though a USB outlet in my house on occasion. No problems there either. The plug fits perfectly in the USB C port of my phone. The cord seems well built and durable. The trade-off is that it is a little stiff, but I prefer that over a flimsy cord that will wear out quickly.

    I bought this 6' cable to reach from my wall outlet to my bed so it doesn't keep pulling the charger out of the wall. The cable is very durable and makes a firm feel when connected. It does not wobble around once plugged into the phone. I also tried using it in my truck to connect my Android Auto and it worked great, no delays or miscommunications. I will be buying another one solely for my vehicle. Great product, do not hesitate to purchase.

    IT'S A CABLE

    It's a cable. One end is standard USB that annoys you because you have to flip it over 50 percent of the time to plug it in just like every other USB cable, and the other end is apparently made from unicorns because I wasn't able to find it in my stash of USB cables from all my other electronics. I used mine to connect my Apple TV to my Mac so I could reset it when it froze, so if that's what you were going to use yours for, it's your lucky day!

    USB-c

    My new LG5 uses the USB-c charging/data cord. I originally didn't like having a different charging type cord, until I realized that I no longer had charging difficulties, coming unplugged, cheap cords that barely charge a few percent if at all, short tips that don't connect properly. The longer tip enables a good connection that doesn't fall out and transfers data rapidly. I watched my grandson throw away a broken iPhone cord last night. I'm generally ok changing something that works better, over the status quo.

    When I first heard about USB C cables I thought "Uggh! Why is there going to be another type of USB connector!" I recently upgraded my phone to one that uses USB C and see the benefits. Most importantly, it charges very quickly. Almost as important, you do not have to worry if the connector is upside down. This particular USB C cable works really well, has a good length and is very sturdy, I highly recommend it.

    Great recharging cord for my new Samsung Galaxy S+

    I bought this cord to plug into the fast charging plug I have for my Samsung Galaxy phone. I had an extra plug but no cord so I got this one from Best Buy. There is a faster one which was about 10 dollars more and that was completely unnecessary for recharging the phone. If you're tempted to go with the costlier one, it's not necessary for this purpose. I believe the Best Buy rep told me that the costlier one was better for downloads.

    Great Additional Charger

    I purchased this for my wife one day when she left her charger at home. She loves it and hasn't had any issues with it. It is not too long where it would get tangled up in her purse like some of the other chargers and it is not too short so she can still use it while her phone charges. It takes the same amount of time to charge her phone as her original charger does as well. Overall it has been a great purchase so far.

    Bought this for my wife's new Samsung Galaxy TabS3. She has a pink protective case and wanted a pink charging chord as well. The 6' length is long enough for her to plug into the wall outlet and have the tablet firmly in hand without stretching out the ends of the chord. It snaps in perfectly time after time. Good snug fit and good price. Highly recommend for the length of the chord by itself.

    I purchased this item April 2017 and as of October 2017 the charger won't charge. I purchased this charger because the price was less than $12, the cord was long enough to stay plugged in next to my bed, and it charged fast. Now it says 24+ hours to charge while the charge goes backwards.

    I lost my lg g5's oem charging cable and had to rush out to bestbuy to grab one. The usb-c cord was quite expensive but still at a manageable price since they just came out! The cord has great length. I do not know about durability but I feel like as long as you take care of your products and not abuse them it will last forever! It works great and is compatible with the super fast charging. I would probably stock up on these!

    I purchased this in August of last year and with minimum usage I used it to charge my phone at night and not even a year later it has stopped charging. I have contacted Belkin support asking if they will replace the product if they replace it I will change my review to a higher star rating based on good customer service, but until I can get an answer, 1 star.

    The Belkin type c charger is over priced, and the 2 I bought were returned. One wouldn't even work, I had to keep wiggling the wire. It was the cord not the phone either bc the phone is brand new. The second one my phone kept saying weak or slow charge every time I connected my phone to it. I bought a 3 pack of type c charges 6ft long for $7. So less than half the price and I got 3 that all work.

    Cable worked great! Husband received new IPad from work. His older IPad would not back up to the cloud. Researched this cable, purchased it and downloaded iTunes. Transfer was fast and new Ipad has all his data on it. He can also use the cable to charge his IPad on the go.
